La Dispute Only Everything Below Lyrics

Untitled 7” Track Listing

  • 1 Only Everything Below
  • 2 Shall Never Lose Its Power
  • Both butterflies and dragonflies have wings like when you sing
    I swear you hit two different notes but they don't harmonize as clean as
    When you speak, there is a rhythm in the scraping of your tongue along your teeth
    That comes across as well as hell inside of heaven in a feast
    Of flies and anything with wings that tries to sing but where
    You ripped two different holes, see, it won't cauterize as cleanly
    As you think, and if you listen to the rhythm in your sleep
    You can hear me speaking, "You are a wolf to me."

    Don't believe your ears nor trust your mouth I think that
    Every single feeble doubt-soaked promise of trust
    Had a mind to leave you
    Out in the rain with your hands to the train tracks
    Pulling the ropes with your teeth
    But you're too weak and you're too tired, child
    Lay down, I will tear all the ghosts from your dreams, from the dream
    Oh, king, you've stepped on the wrong crack

    Rejoice!
    It is beating still
    Still strong
    Still thundering onward
    It turns its palms up
    Lifts its voice up
    And it speaks
    Says, "I don't know"

    He speaks with the speed in the clench of a bear-trap
    Softly rebuilding the castles he'd kept
    Says, "There is grace in a steeple collapsing"
    Straightens the sheets on the beds where they'd slept
    Thinking his love was as passive as flowers
    Planted a garden of lies in her chest
    Says, "There is grace in a steeple collapsing"
    Pointing the calm in his eyes to the west

    To Valinor
    Where love was sent on airplane wings
    To shake and be shaken

    Still, the flowers open as she passes
    And the birds, they sing to greet her
    Though she heaves blood
    Though she heaves blood
    Though she heaves blood
    Though she
    Though she heaves blood
    Though she heaves blood

    There is grace in a steeple collapsing
    There is grace in a steeple collapsing
    Oh, there is grace in a steeple collapsing
    There is grace in a steeple collapse, collapsing

    Collapsing

    There is grace in a steeple collapsing
    There is grace in a steeple collapsing
    And he said, "Boy, get your things together
    Make them wood and make them stones
    And we'll build you a house
    There isn't ever any shelter anymore"
